for the united states. hundreds of libyans amassed outside the consulate, airing signs denouncing yesterday's violent destruction which led to the death of u.s. ambassador christopher stevens and three others. in addition libyan authorities arrested four men suspected of instigating the protests. president obama called both egyptian president morsi and magariaf. the two calls had decidedly different tones. president obama expressed appreciation to libyan president magariaf for the cooperation received from the libyan government and people in responding to the attack. though questions still remain about the role libyan terrorists played in escalating the attacks. with respect to egypt the president had made an interesting comment in an interview earlier yesterday with telemundo. >> would you consider the current egyptian regime an ally of the united states? >> obama: i don't think that we would consider them an ally but we don't consider them an enemy. >> eliot: against this backdrop, president obama's phone call with egyptia

ambassador is killed in a brutal senseless murder? well you attack the president of the united states and accuse him of siding with the terrorists. sarah palin no. mitt romney. how low can you go? man, that's going to dominate our talk this morning. first, let's take a little time out to get the latest, today's current news update from lisa ferguson joining us from los angeles. hi lisa. early good morning to you. >> hey bill, good morning everyone. we are seeing more political fallout this morning after statements from mitt romney took aim at president obama during the attacks in libya and cairo. tuesday night romney blamed president obama for sympathizing with the attackers and then he double downed on those claims again wednesday morning. take a look. >> the administration was wrong to stand by a statement sympathizing with those who had breached our embassy in egypt instead of condemning their actions. >> romney is basing that off of a statement from the u.s. embassy in cairo saying it does not support the crit
. instead when our grounds are being attacked and being breached, the first response of the united states must be out outrage at the breach of the sovereignty of our nation. >> eliot: president obama fired right back. >> governor romney seems to have a tendency to shoot first and aim later. as president one thing you learn is you can't do that. >> eliot: tough words from the president. for more let's go to special assistant to president clinton and previews of georgetown university. pj-- >> george washington university. >> eliot: excuse me, i'll stay out of that. this is not a laughing matter. what do we know about the genesis of this deadly and violent attack in benghazi. >> that's a key question. we know the attack and the reality and the tragedy. we don't yet know whether there were sparks by this film, and if it was a respond takennous spontaneous response taken to the extreme and who was behind it. >> eliot: and you're trying to zero on the genesis where it came were. it could have been a al-qaeda plant, and this could have been a response made in the west we just don't know. >> sure
saying, the embassy of the united states in kay row condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt religious feelings of muslims as we condemn hurt thosecondemn efforts to offend believers of all religious. later, no one was hurt and protesters eventually disbanded. as that situation in egypt was winding down, the situation in libya was getting worse. so ten hours after the statement was issued in cairo at about 4:00 in the afternoon then attackers in libya entered the american consulate in benghazi and started firing. three americans were trapped inside including ambassador stevens. if this were not enough of a crisis going on, back at home mitt romney decides to weigh in before it's even clear what is going on in libya. so at 10:30 last night romney issues a statement attacking the cairo embassy's statement earlier, when those guys were just trying to diffuse the situation on the ground. romney said in his statement last night, it's disgraceful that the obama administration's first response was not to condemn attacks on our top plow our diplomatic missions but

take on extreme importance. israeli prime minister warned the united states yesterday that if we don't set clear red lines that would determine when the united states would take military action against iran then he said quote, we have no moral right to say they can't bomb iran. he is really -- >> he has been very frustrated because he would like assurances from the united states where it gets to the point where they feel like they are in trouble -- he is more on the end of imminent is now. and president obama is not going to do that in a public or apparently in a private statement. what he said is exactly what he said, this idea about no moral right, and so -- last night, they had an hour-long phone call, the white house and to some extent the prime minister's office are trying to stamp down on this controversy. they understand there is not a security advantage to airing their dirty laundry. >> bill: we have heard there are definite lines, right, that if iran crosses those lines, we would use military force. but we haven't heard the specific line. i just wonde
the industry gets embedded here in the united states. more of the wind energy development in republican districts is present. 81% of the wind energy development is in republican districts. so don't you think there could be bipartisan support for the production tax credit? >> there is in the senate -- senator grassley, senator moran and senator brown have been supportive. what is the production tax credit do for rural communities? it is a cash crop that's predictable every year. most of the wind blows in agricultural areas. we also have manufacturing states like yours in the midwest that are dying to regain a manufacturing footing and so again, i just -- this is -- beyond tone-deaf on the part of the romney campaign. let me say one other thing the wind industry doesn't expect to have the subsidy forever. they want it phased out. but it is a fledgling industry. it needs these incentives. they've been helpful in building our manufacturing base back to where we want it to be. >> jennifer: you personally have been testifying

the same type of announcement and he's president of the united states. i think politico does a good job, but they have this story a couple of weeks ago that there were internal fighting in the obama campaign, now they came out with this one. if it was so bad why wasn't there on the record quotes? everything was anonymous quotes. we see this as typical campaigns like to do this. there is no question that i think that the romney campaign has to do something different. the polls are showing that we're down. i don't always trust polls but i sense that we are down now. the sitting president is a great campaigner. i think he's a terrible governor, but he's a very good campaigner. i think they're going to have to adjust and do something new. >> eliot: rick, i got credit where credit is due. your point about the president aboutand his record on china is right. but let's challenge the motivation, that's something that i'm hesitant to do but the timing weighs heavily on your point. the romney campaign has to do something different. one poll is not a trend but the--all the polls together show you

are protesting? >> definitely built up resentment against the west and the united states exploding. another thing that may give people solace is some of these protests albeit explosive were relatively small. today's protest in cairo was about 2,000. last year you had hundreds of thousands. in sudan it was 5,000. it doesn't mean we shouldn't be alarmed, but they are not drawing everybody. >> jennifer: today the taliban attacked the allied base in afghanistan where prince harry is stationed. is that about him or the movie, or something else? >> it was absolutely about him. the taliban put out a statement saying we will kill prince harry. they were looking for him and going after him. >> jennifer: let's get to another really important nexus here which is iran and israel. first of all does this wave mean that iran is next to act up? >> no, i don't -- look you have had times where iran has had its own revolution in 2009. what iran could do is seize the distraction. the u.s. will be distractioned with this right now. there is an election and a major crisis in the middle east pr
. the right to vote in the united states is a fragile right and we don't take care of it very well. >> not only is it legally on shaky crowd, because it's firmly inshrined in the constitution, but we have election districts scattered around the united states. many of them making up rules many of them underfunded many without proper training for all of them involved and all of them subject to partisanship many who want to alter or bend the rules. >> eliot: partisanship has gotten in the way of easy reform that could overcome these mechanical problems. i want to raise one more constitutional challenge, which is the electoral challenge. what is this that we're talking about and why do we have it any more? >> it's a vestige of the 18th century. as it stands, it works and warps to voters. >> eliot: explain that. >> sure, basically in order to win the presidency you've got to get 270 electoral college votes. and you know, what you can basically do is really quickly take a look at which ones are solid. which one are guaranteed. >> eliot: democrats will win new york, why spend monday there

. and there is a reason for it. there is a growing but shadowy anti-muslim network in the united states and in europe that actively promoting the fear of muslims in our society. they're good at it. they make a lot of money at it. it contributes to the way that, unfortunately, many americans view muslims. >> eliot: do you feel that this concerted effort -- i'll take as a premise of this question even though you would have to prove the point to me, if this group exists, is it fundamentally different than other groups that existed opinions about catholics or jews or any other religious group that was new to the united states or that from which people felt a threat in some form? >> certainly, you know, we've sign this type of fearmongerring before. we saw it with catholics. we saw it with jews. we saw it with communists even. the reason that people are making the claim that michele bachmann's anti-muslim witch-hunt in congress harks back to the day of joseph mccarthy because we've experienced the bouts of hate before. the r
is not a challenge that can be contained and that's why the united states will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> eliot: the president also spoke out against human trafficking in a speech at the clinton global initiative. a little earlier, it was mitt romney who basked in the former president clinton's presence before rapped sizing over plans to help developing nations with prosperity packs. >> working with the private sector, the program will identify the barriers to investment and trade and entrepreneurship and entrepreneurialism in developing nations. and in exchange for removing the barriers and opening their markets to u.s. investment and trade, developing nations will receive u.s. assistance packages. >> eliot: romney said in a typical dig against president obama he would never apologize for america as fact checkers have shown the president hasn't but never mind the facts. after leaving new york, romney joined congressman ryan in ohio for two days of campaign and according to the latest "
is not enough to get him elected president of the united states, so he had to start off where he did, which was reforming and explaining the damage that has been done to the republican party and letting us know who he is. without doing that the next six weeks are completely unimportant to him. so we expect to see a little bit of a bump. one of the things i wanted to add, though this bump he receive is coming before barack obama speaks next week. he is a fabulous speaker. people like his wife and children, and the fact he is so supportive of women's rights in the workplace and reproductive rights, so i would think we would see any bump that mitt romney got this week probably evaporate after next week. >> jennifer: karl one more quick question, romney claimed that republicans had united behind the president following his election. take a quick listen. >> oh, god. >> jennifer: hang on. take a listen. >> romney: americans always come together after elections -- >> jennifer: well, i'm not sure if you caught it all but he was clearly saying that his party has supported the pres
party do we want to lead the united states. >> mr. nixon would you like to comment on that statement? >> i have no comment. >> cenk: the people who listened on the radio thought nixon had one, but the people watching it on tv thought kennedy won. it appeared that the debate swung the election in favor of kennedy. ever since then, people have put a tremendous amount of weight on the debates. because of that everybody plays the expectations game. what is funny here is all of the republicans are saying oh my god, obama is going to win. >> mitt romney has the advantage because he has been through 20 of these debates. >> mitt romney is a business guy, and hasn't had a debate against a democrat in overten years. >> mitt romney is just in practice. >> having been through this much more recently than president obama, i think he starts with an advantage. >> i think barack obama will be formidable. >> but i have never been in a presidential debate like this, and it will be a new experience. >> the president is going to lose the first debate next week. he will lose it. >> cenk: i
